Friday Favorite: Personalized Name Rings

sterling silver personalized rings - wardrobe oxygenThis Friday Favorite is one you’ve likely already seen on the blog. I purchased these personalized name rings in July and since then they have hardly ever left my fingers. I have featured them on Instagram, linked to them in outfit posts, even mentioned them in a gift guide. But I love them so much I felt they deserved their own post.

I love big chunky rings, but I find when typing they sometimes get in the way. Last year I tried the delicate wire-like ring trend and they looked kinda goofy on my short stubby fingers. And I’m not a delicate jewelry gal. One day when trolling through Etsy I came across these sterling silver bands you can personalize with most anything. I got one with Emerson’s name on it. It arrived, it was a tad loose and brushed silver. I showed it to Karl and he tried it on his right ring finger. Perfect fit, and it hasn’t left his hand since. I decided to buy myself a new personalized name ring, correct size, and this time with a bright shiny silver finish… and while I was at it, I’d get one for each of the loves of my life.

The rings have been in the ocean, the pool, the shower. They have cleaned out drains, scrubbed dog puke, raked leaves, and dug holes and still look great. Unlike my big chunky rings, I don’t notice them when typing or washing dishes, and they look proportional on my fingers. I love looking down and seeing Karl and Emerson’s names, it makes me smile when I’m writing a proposal at the office or a blog post at home.

    Love personalized jewelry, and art, too. Also, I love your lipcolor–can you share what it is?

      It’s Bite Beauty in Dusty Rose with NARS gloss in Viva over it I love the Bite color, but I HATE the tube. The bullet wasn’t even half used and it disconnected from the tube and has gotten everywhere and the formula hasn’t held up so I can’t even really apply it with a lip brush, it’s such a mess. I recently bought NARS Toledo thinking it would be an alternate and while it’s pretty it’s not as mauve, not as cool, and not as deep a color. Still on the hunt for a replacement!

    This is very cute! I remember we looked at something similar for wedding bands, but the writing was on the inside. Pricing isn’t bad, either!

    great post! Those rings log great on you, especially with the grey sweater and red nails. I’ve got stubby fingers too, so I can relate to the difficulty of finding the right ring. For years I never wore rings because I didn’t want to draw attention to my short, fat fingers. But once I hit 50, I learned to lover the person I am, and to stop wishing I was shaped differently. Ahhh, what a relief.

    Love these – jewelry that means something is precious to me too. Must try one in “Sandy” (and/or “King the Cat”) xo
